Knowing we are at a rather serious tipping point in the health care system and knowing that many many good people work on the front lines is evidenced by the recent letter from Rick Zmudzinski.
In my view these type of letters give the false impression that all is well at Northern Health and UHNBC and that we should all just be grateful and in awe.
I have often wondered why there has never been any in depth reporting on the degree to which Northern Health administration sucks up a lot of funds which would be more beneficial at the "care" (physic's speech people and others) level.
It is my understanding that the duplication of job descriptions and "efforts" by management and administration is silly and has been completely resented by the staff on the front lines for a long time.
Rick, of course the nurses and care-aides are wonderful. And, mostly they burn out, too, from keeping up the brave true kindness they are born with and the skill they are trained for in light of all the administrative turmoil. Sure, medals would be in order for them. But how about a core review for UHNBC?
